The SkyScout from Celestron is like having a planetarium in the palm of your hand. It's not a telescope and it doesn't magnify objects. But it does a whole lot more.
Using Global Positioning (GPS) technology and other sensors linked to a built-in database, this 16 ounce device can identify nearly all visible celestial objects in the sky. Just "point and shoot". Wonder where the Andromeda galaxy is tonight? Just choose "M31" from the menu and blinking arrows will lead you to the right spot.
The SkyScout can also tell you the best objects to view on a particular night, depending on the time of year and your global location. A built-in field guide provides text display and audio information about the stars, comets and planets; even the astronomers who discovered them. A USB port can be used to upload additional guide information.
